I like the twist at the end where it turns out that above all Kris is indignant or hurt at not being remembered, and taking it out on Red. It's understandable and sad, because I too feel like there's a quiet tragedy there (Kris being replaced by Lyra).
With that knowledge the story also makes more sense upon reading it a second time. At first it wasn't entirely clear where they were or what their relationship towards each is (are or have they been involved?) Because of the gaps the story feels a little disjointed at times, going back and forth between Red and Kris and her mood swings.
"I remember you, Kris." Lovely end line and lovely idea for a story.

You know, I never thought of Red and Kris's situations like that, but now that you mention it, this fic makes a lot more sense. Even though I started with FRLG and HGSS, I always did feel a little sad that Kris wasn't there. The least the game producers could've done was make her a pseudo-rival or part of some side-quest, or something. I also feel bad for Leaf sometimes, because you only ever see her in FRLG, and then she just vanishes, too.

I really loved this. I think you did a great job with this. Everything was conveyed very nicely. Keep up the great work!

I thought it was good. After all, you're completely right... Kris was forgotten while Gold and Red are still around. :) I liked the oneshot alot. _
Ah, but will Black 2 & White 2 have a Pokemon World Tournament?

Indeed. These two are the 'lost champions' of the franchise, and I love 'em both.
